Let's get to the point now
Just because we've got the same mom & dad
That don't mean I'm your keeper
That don't mean I owe anything to you
You don't care for me
And man, I don't think that much of you

Cause we're brothers brothers brothers
I don't approve of anything you do
Cause we're brothers brothers brothers
Cain and Abel and me and you

You drove my car when we were young boys
And you tore it up too
You never paid to get it fixed
And you got me beat up a time or two
I know I should forgive and forget
But man I still hold a grudge against you

(chorus)

It's as normal as it can be
This sibling rivalry
We should have dropped it at 22
But man I can't stand the things you do
Cause we're brothers brothers brothers
You're always wanting something from me
Cause we're brothers brothers brothers
It was so much fun having you in the family
Cause we're brothers brothers brothers
Now that we're grown up it ain't helped nothin' at all
Cause we're brothers brothers brothers
On my birthday, please don't bother to call
Cause we're brothers brothers brothers
Brothers brothers brothers
Yeah, you're my brother brother brother
Brothers brothers brothers
Yeah, we're brothers brothers brothers
Yeah, we're brothers brothers brothers
Brothers brothers brothers
